with our panel. jon meacham, let's say thomas jefferson realized he had a fiscal cliff the country was going to go over. what do you think he would do? >> one thing he did every night when congress was in session, more or less, he had lawmakers down to dinner. he broke with the federalist cut canom of precedent asks very formal dinners and formal toftsz. he had what he called pell-mell. people came down, sat down, sat wherever they could, and they would have dinner together. he would write family members and say i'm going to be an unpunctual correspondence because dinner is here and i'm going to have dinner every night with the lawmakers. it does help on the margins and as we know, politics is decided on the margin. >> one i think i think it's not just for the fiscal cliff, but if our economy is going to need mobilization to get more jobs here, fewer exports abroad, then you've got to have some c.e.o.s come in, like f.d.r. did. f.d.r. brought in the head of chrysler and sears and roebuck. he had two top republicans in his cabinet, and i know c.e.o.s don't like to come to government because they have to give out all the stuff they have, those taxes. those are the people i think that want to help their country. the country has been so

think, alisyn the fiscal cliff is contributing to uncertainty in the short-term. i think an even worse scenario long-term than going over the cliff would be continuing down this path. more spending and more redistribution, there's a time when the path needs to be fixed not just proverbial saying goes, kicking the can down the road. so, you know, i think even if we've got a resolution, which didn't suit the republicans,exa some up tick in the economy because what we're seeing now is economic lethargy, total economic stagnation because people are reluctant to commit capital and how can they again, look 30 years down the line when our own government can't look a couple of weeks. >> during the the campaign, joe biden floated something that some people thought might be the new plan, maybe he was foreshadowing something he says, and taxes need to be raised on people making a million dollars and above. and the president said 200,000 for an individual or above. do you think that could be the compromise? >> i think unfortunately that might be the compromise, might be the compromise and the wrong answer and the insistence that the so-called rich, as you pointed out. is
